Over the last decade there has been exponential growth in the use of large‐scale technologies as a tool to understand a wide range of phenomena in the Biological and Medical Sciences. These technologies include (but are not limited to) genomics, transcriptomics, translatomics, proteomics, metabolomics, epigenomics and they are used by scientists in very diverse fields of research. At the University of Leeds we have a significant number of active researchers that fit under this “Omics” umbrella. These researchers are spread across different schools, faculties and campuses. Generating a supergroup provides these PIs and their research groups with the opportunity to interact at multiple levels and in a virtual and physical environment.

The mission of “LeedsOmics” is to engage and unify the critical mass of ‘omics’ researchers at the University of Leeds into one central virtual institute. We provide key Bioinformatics support and infrastructure to raise the impact and quality of our research output and to streamline our research activities. We host a set of activities for the community that provides fora for research discussions to foster innovative research ideas, exchange knowledge across the domain, and facilitate joint grant proposals. With these supports and activities we aim to increase the research income and research impact of our members. In addition, we provide training for members of the community which serves to provide highly desirable skill sets in our researchers at all levels and facilitates the development of novel platforms/technologies.
